    Job Title*: GIS Specialist
    Job Description: The Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) seeks to employ a Geographical Information System (GIS) Specialist to manage the sourcing, assembly, and analysis of spatial data in support of the Vector Control Project, as well as to provide day-to-day project management support to senior investigators. The GIS Specialist will also work with a broader team of MEI staff and consultants to lead various modeling activities, and will be responsible for several key related deliverables, including contribution to manuscript preparation and presentation of work at national and international meetings.

    The ideal candidate has a strong background in management and manipulation of spatial data layers, malaria/vector-borne disease and broader public health experience, and strong project management and writing skills. The candidate will contribute creativity and energy to the project, will thrive in a fast-paced, mission-driven organization, and will be skilled at interpersonal communication and relationship management.

    Please note: This is a full time contract employment position through August 31, 2016 and reporting to the MEI Spatial Epidemiologist. The role may require 5-10% domestic and international travel.

    GLOBAL HEALTH SCIENCES / GLOBAL HEALTH GROUP
    The Global Health Group is an “action tank,” dedicated to identifying, elaborating and translating innovative solutions to major global health challenges into large-scale action, to advance health and save lives in low- and middle-income countries. The Global Health Group works across the spectrum, from conducting research and policy analysis, to building consensus, to catalyzing the development and implementation of pioneering programs in collaborating countries. Organizationally, the Global Health Group is a component of UCSF Global Health Sciences. The Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) provides intellectual and practical leadership and support for the elimination of malaria. More information is available at http://globalhealthsciences.ucsf.edu/global-health-group/malaria-elimination-initiative.

    The MEI recently received funding for a catalytic vector control project to gather and generate evidence around novel and aggressive vector control approaches for malaria elimination that go beyond ITNs and IRS (see Annex 1 for Project Overview). Through reviews, case studies, and geo-spatial and transmission modeling, the MEI will examine past, present and future tools for mosquito control, as well as approaches to pest management and control of other vectors to assemble a toolbox of strategies and tools for national malaria programs working toward elimination. The MEI will convene several different fora for information sharing, as well as engage experts through consultancies and a project advisory group to advise on the research program.
